A harmonious event.
Each spring, engage in some of history’s most monumental choral music. Join The Phipps Choral Society as they perform timeless works from the great composers – Handel, Mozart, Brahms, Vivaldi, and others.
No auditions are necessary to be a member of the Choral Society chorus, however a good grasp of basic musicianship skills will be of definite benefit to interested singers.
Singers are expected to attend weekly rehearsals (two absences are permitted) and the final rehearsal with orchestra and soloists.
Weekly chorus rehearsals, under the direction of Choral Society director Thomas Dahle, will begin in the Music Studio of The Phipps Center.
A membership fee is collected from each participant to help with production costs for the performance.
The Phipps Choral Society strives to provide singers and audiences in the St. Croix Valley the opportunity to sing and hear performances of great choral and orchestral music.
Thomas Dahle, Music Director since 1993, received his degree in instrumental and vocal music from Luther College, Decorah, Iowa. He has been a member of The Minnesota Chorale and The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra Chorale. Performances with these groups, in concert with The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and The Minnesota Orchestra, have given him rehearsal and performance experience with world-renowned conductors Robert Shaw, Helmuth Rilling, Jeffrey Tate, Eiji Oue, Hugh Wolff, Andrew Litton, Harry Bicket, Nicholas McGegan, Douglas Boyd, Kathy Romey, and Dale Warland.
